Indonesia: Container farming introduced on Jakarta

The DKI Jakarta Food, Maritime and Agriculture Security Service (KPKP) introduced container farming. Head of the DKI Jakarta KPKP Agency, Suharini Eliawati, said that anyone can farm in containers. 

"Farmers in DKI Jakarta don't have to get dirty," said Suharini in her statement, Friday (10/8/2021). She explained that several plants can be cultivated in containers including Pak Choy and lettuce, without being dependant on the weather. 

Suharini added that cultivation in containers is expected to be used by residents of DKI Jakarta, "especially for mothers to meet their food needs on a household scale," said Suharini.

She revealed that one container farm at the Ragunan Tourism Agro Educational Center, South Jakarta, was the result of a collaboration between the DKI Provincial Government through the KPKP Service and PLN Caring.
